Exhibitions and events all over the city throughout May aim to spark new interest in contemporary metal design and give visitors to Sheffield an insight into the city’s vibrant metalwork industry.
Galvanize Sheffield is a perfect opportunity to see and purchase metalwork, meet contemporary designers and learn about the making process as well as hear about the latest innovations. The festival for 2013 features over 50 designers based in the region and beyond and hosts a unique programme produced by Ruskin Mill Trust, Sheffield Assay Office, Yorkshire Artspace, Museums Sheffield, Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust along with input from manufacturers and independent makers. Galvanize also forms part of the city’s celebrations of 100 years of stainless steel. The festival is expected to attract visitors from within the region and beyond.
